Before attending College and University, I spent several years working in a family construction business gaining a basic understanding of the key elements of property maintenance and refurbishment. Then, since graduating from Napier University (Edinburgh) in 1998, I returned to the industry and have worked for over 14 years in the education and care sector as both an estate and facilities manager.
My facilities management experience includes WCS Care Group with 13 residential care homes across Warwickshire, the E-ACT multi academy trust with schools in Daventry, and the Princethorpe Foundation, which has schools in Kenilworth, Rugby and Princethorpe. Prior to this I held management positions at the Warwickshire College Group.
I had day to day responsibility for the caretakers, porters, maintenance staff, contractors and the external cleaning contract. I also prepared specifications for the minor works programme and oversaw major refurbishment projects. These educational sites had an extensive range of buildings, so I have experience in both modern and historic property management. I also provided support for H & S matters, security, and safeguarding, whilst ensuring that all statutory inspections/services were carried out and that buildings were always operational.
I am very pleased to be joining the team at Jubilee House and look forward to working with you.
